Mummy Buzz


The Surrealist Jewelry Designer

Love it or Loathe it?

If you want to get people talking, all you need is to start wearing jewelry by Londoner Percy Lau. The second-year jewelry design student, who is to accessories what Dali was to painting, has created miniature body parts as accessories. 

Picture a tiny ear worn as an earring, a mouth, a nose, even a penis. 

"My inspirations come to me in a split second and if I like it, I make it," said Lau. "I base my designs on 'having a laugh,' so that might be a reason why I come up with weird things."

While many find her creations quirky, many more are 'grossed out' by the eerie (no pun) concept. Lau, who uses a type of clay called super sculpey, fashioned an ear brooch because people "need to listen more."

Her quirky body part line, which also includes items like 3D glasses and a bracelet made out of tiny Mao, is available for sale on Etsy and ranges between $24-$42.

Icky or inspired? Would you wear this jewelry?
